The single also included the official Jambo video.
"Jambo! Hello! It's a world scout jamboree A hundred years to date Let's all celebrate One World One Promise"
This is a short excerpt of the lyrics that could be heard around Hylands Park throughout the duration of the event. Scouts often informally chanted it while walking around the site, or during organised events.
It also played at 10pm every night on the Jamboree radio station, Promise FM.
The song was a controversial one, with mixed views amongst the Jamboree community. When it was sung at the opening night concert, many people complained about the 'poor quality' of the song.
To a large extent the song was somewhat an anti-climax, after claims that with the help of the Scouting movement, the song could reach number one in the UK singles chart. Howevere, if every participant at the Jamboree had purchased a copy, it could have made it into the top 40 and could therefore have received national airplay on BBC Radio 1.
A group of scouts in Iceland also did their own version of the song. The lyrics were at first a direct translation of the English version but the group changed it a bit with the help of others to make it more humourous. The lead vocals were sung by Jóhann Auðunn Þorsteinsson and Eygló Höskuldardóttir.
